ActivePresenter can output a presentation in the following file formats: Audio Video Interleave (.AVI), Windows Media Video (.WMV), and MPEG4 (.MP4). YouTube will accept any of these file types, but will require that the resolution be 720p (1280×720) or higher before it will be available as YouTube HD (high definition). You can read more about the requirements from this YouTube help article.
